sumary fortran



 Hi CCL,
 
first of all I would like to the people who wrote me very interesting answers to my question.
 If yours is a Windows environment, and if you don't mind an older
 commercial version (Fortran 77), I've been satisfied with the Watcom
 product available at http://www.openwatcom.org/.

 Hi George,
 This is pretty vague since my laptop is in dock with all my
 old mail. I'm using the family machine.
 Under linux on a PC, g77 (now part of gcc) works OK in some
 cases. It compiles GAMESS fine, Gaussian do not support it,
 but I gather some people have succeeded and been told off by
 Gaussian. It gives rubbish with mopac, at least under
 Redhat7.2. The old fortran-to-C converter, f2c, followed by
 gcc also works fine and is better for mopac - otherwise much
 like g77.
 The intel compiler is free for f77. I think there are linux
 and Windows versions.
 There is a free f77 from the Salford compiler company.
 Salford C is not free but cheap. I have not used these a lot
 as I prefer unix.
 g77 also works under cygwin which is a unix shell sitting on
 top of Windows, not as linux separate with dual-boot or even
 a machine that runs only linux.
 If you want details and do not get them from others, let me
 know. I'm retired now but working at home and I am getting a
 new fast linux box in the next couple of weeks. I look
 forward to your summary. It may be very useful to me.
 Regards,
 Brian Duke.

 All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
 Gnu's G77 works well on my PC.

 George,
 If you are familiar with UNIX environment, check "Cygwin".
 Cygwin is a UNIX environment, developed by Red Hat, for Windows, so g77 (GNU
 Fortran compiler) is available under your PC.
 Check: http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/

 For research purposes you can get free and unsupported the intel compiler
 for fortran 95 (www.intel.com), there are manuals on line and math
 optimized libraries. I downloaded it for Linux but I think there is also a
 Windows version.
